it feels like winter is just whizzing by. this weekend, i had my first try-on of some spring/summer clothes. not surprisingly, i found some new loves. everyone who is around me when i try on new clothes always knows when i have found a new love: i can't take it off. it surprised me when two of my new loves this shopping trip turned out to be two pairs of trousers. surprised me for two reasons. first, because i am so not a trouser girl. second, for this reason: back when i was on a very (very) tight budget and often had to buy ... let's just say it ... cheap, poorly constructed clothes, it used to bug me when side seams on a pair of trousers wouldn't stay put and the trouser leg twisted around the leg. back then, i don't think it would ever have entered my mind that there would come a time in my life when i would fall in love with a pair of trousers with a deliberately twisting leg! but this is exactly what happened this weekend!

at some point in my past, this piece of wisdom was imparted to me: the "phenomenon" of having lots of clothes in one's closet but never having a thing to wear is symptomatic of one having few if any clothes for the situations that one most has to dress for and clothes in over abundance for the situations that one has to dress for only on occasion. the way to "cure" never having a thing to wear is consciously to align one's wardrobe to one's actual present life (as opposed to having a wardrobe from one's past life or from the life one might want to lead). i think about this every now and again. mostly because, where dressing is concerned, i am someone who likes to go against the grain. i know how, in the circles in which i travel professionally, i should be dressing. but i have always chosen to march to the beat of my own drum. so conventional wisdom doesn't always help me. still, even allowing for the necessary modifications brought about by my rebellious nature, might there not be something for me in the conventional wisdom?

this is one of my favourite things to do in the winter: to wear ankle socks and shoes with a skirt or dress underneath a big winter coat. i don't get too many opportunities to do this. but when i get any opportunity to do this, i take it.
